What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions worldwide, often characterized by the presence of red pimples, particularly on the face, resulting from inflamed or infected oil glands. At Fundamental Aesthetic Medical Clinic, we understand the physical and emotional impact of acne, and we're committed to providing effective solutions for clearer, healthier skin.

Causes of Acne

The development of acne is a complex process involving various factors:

  • Overproduction of Sebum: Sebum is an oily substance produced by the skin's oil glands. Excessive sebum production can lead to the clogging of pores.

  • Pore Obstruction: When excess sebum, dead skin cells, and debris accumulate, they can block the pores, creating an environment for bacteria to thrive.

  • Bacterial Growth: The presence of the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria in clogged pores leads to inflammation and infection.

  • Inflammation: As bacteria multiply, the body's immune response triggers inflammation, causing the characteristic redness and swelling associated with acne.

What are the different types of Acne?

Acne presents in various forms, including:

  • Whiteheads and Blackheads: Non-inflammatory types of acne where the pores are clogged but not yet inflamed.

  • Papules and Pustules: Inflamed red bumps (papules) or red bumps with a white center (pustules) caused by bacterial infection.

  • Nodules and Cysts: Deeper, painful lesions beneath the skin's surface, often leading to scarring.

Treatment Aims for Acne

Acne treatment aims to clear the skin, reduce existing pimples, prevent new ones, and improve overall skin appearance. First, maintaining good hygiene and using gentle cleansers helps keep the skin clean and lessen oil buildup. Many treatments focus on unclogging pores and reducing inflammation. 

At Fundamental Aesthetic Medical Clinic, we offer advanced and tailored acne treatments to address your specific concerns. One of the most recommended treatment would be:

  • Carbon Laser Peel: A highly effective laser treatment in Singapore that controls sebum production and eliminates bacteria within the pores. It also removes debris from the pores, resulting in clearer and brighter skin. Carbon laser peel can help reduce acne marks, enlarged pores, and oily skin.
